Two play types have been identified:
1. 3-way dip closure within Miocene carbonate reservoirs plus sealing faults to the NW that trend NE-SW. Upper Miocene (Pannonian) mudstone seal.
2. Sub Miocene unconformity stratigraphic traps in the Palaeogene, proven to the NW of Igal II to be a petroleum system with Palaeogene source, reservoir and seal.Proof of the Palaeogene petroleum system would open up this license for further exploration.
